    NEW YORK — Divorce has its price — and no celeb, it appears, knows that better than Michael Jordan. The basketball superstar's split last December from his wife of 17 years, Juanita, is No. 1 on Forbes.com's list of "The 10 Most Expensive Celebrity Divorces."

    Juanita Jordan could possibly "get more than $150 million in a settlement, making the Jordan divorce the most expensive in entertainment history," Forbes said.

    Neil Diamond, whose 1995 divorce from Marcia Murphey cost him an estimated $150 million, holds second place.

    Steven Spielberg comes in third for paying his ex-wife Amy Irving an estimated $100 million, which was then half his fortune, when they divorced in 1989. The Oscar-winning director is now worth $3 billion.

    Also making the list are estimated settlements between Harrison Ford and Melissa Mathison ($85 million); Kevin Costner and Cindy Silva ($80 million); Paul McCartney and Heather Mills, whose divorce could cost him more than $60 million; James Cameron and Linda Hamilton ($50 million); Michael and Diandra Douglas ($45 million and two homes); Lionel and Diane Richie ($20 million); and Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall ($15 to $25 million).

    Forbes said they researched divorces of the last 25 years in compiling the list, which was posted Thursday on its Web site.

    The results are also the subject of a one-hour special to air Saturday (6 p.m. EDT) on the E! Entertainment Network.

    I'm sorry but, what did Juanita jordan do to deserve that much???
    i mean she didn't play basketball for 20 years, she didn't earn all that money. A good 5 or 10 million would suffice, $150 million? Why should a spuse and that means man or woman so calm down ladies get any allomony at all? If you were a stay at home mom then should get something, but half? She did absolutley nothing to help build that fortune.

    Indeed...which is like when Chris Rock talked about OJ Simpson saying that he doesn't think he should have killed her (if he did), but "I understand".

    I don't recall the name of the artist, but he wrote the song "It's Cheaper To Keep Her."
